This page probably looks a bit different. . . This one is an example of my 2D stuff.

The page started out with a crude sketch (just to see how much room I'd need for speech bubbles, and that sort of thing). But I just kept on going with it, and here we are. Part of the issue is that I'm still not happy with my 3D model for Lumi, this approach gave me an alternative. Also, I've been wanting to sketch/paint/draw recently anyway. . . I know it clashes with the other pages, but I'm happy with it for now.

Dang it! What can't you do? Next you will post a video of yourself playing piano, or winning a martial arts championship or something!
Just kidding, Great drawing! Colored pencils?

Actually I used to do martial arts, but I don't play the piano. :-)

Re: the medium. . . the work is still digital, just 2D (wacom tablet and GIMP), as opposed to 3D.

From my perspective, the 2D art, 3D art, and programming, and writing, are all tied together. It is all about trying to share one's inner vision---those are simply different tools to achieve that end.

Exactly what I was thinking, Programming and art are merging.

Still reading and enjoying. The 2d look may not match the 3d art, but I think it still looks good and serves the story, so hey, I'm cool with it.

I'm glad to hear you feel that way!

(Back from holidays, catching up slowly)

I find it interesting (and tbh frustrating) that most 3D artist are good at 2D artwork as well. Also very interesting are the similarities and differences in the result. Can't put a finger on the "why": I think that this looks more "serious" than the 3D art and I'm not sure which one is more the direction you intend or which one I like better, both work.
